Reuters: Vietnamese state media, quoting a senior naval official, had reported that the Boeing 777-200ER flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing had crashed off south Vietnam, but Malaysia's transport minister later denied any crash scene had been identified.

"We are doing everything in our power to locate the plane.

We are doing everything we can to ensure every possible angle has been addressed," Transport Minister Hishamuddin Hussein told reporters near the Kuala Lumpur International Airport.

"We are looking for accurate information from the Malaysian military. They are waiting for information from the Vietnamese side," he said.


CCTV: Malaylasia Airlines has thus far not yet officially confirmed the crash and for the moment has only released the information that all contact with the Boeing 777-200 from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing was lost. The press conference, which lasted a total of five minutes, has already ended.


China.org.cn: From our correspondent at the Malaysia Airlines press conference. Malaysian Airlines has announced that the captain of its crashed Boeing 777-200, carrying 239 people on board, had been with the airline since 1981, while his first officer joined in 2007. Both the airline and emergency services are currently providing their full support and will update information according to the latest developments.
